Sloan’s Farewell Celebration

Camp Joe Ide and Denton Roberts Family camp are held at Loch Leven Camp and Conference Center in Mentone California. On Saturday April 13, 2019 we took a group of youth up to Loch Leven to a farewell celebration for Sloan Hamilton, Operations Manager. Sloan served in this capacity for 8 years and enjoyed a special relationship with All Peoples counselors and campers. All Peoples was represented by staff and past campers. Upon arrival we were able to explore the camp on our own while we waited for the celebration to start. Some of the youth were able to participate in tree climbing. They climbed a tree named Mr. Majestic that was about 100 ft. tall. After the youth finished climbing, everyone gathered for a delicious meal. During the meal everyone had a chance to interact with each other. We met people from other camps and organizations. The youth and adult were able to write personal affirmations to Sloan as a going away gift.  Don and Susan Dewey recognized Sloan for all the hard work that she and her husband Joseph have put into camp.

During the ceremony, Sloan, dedicated a memorial garden sponsored by Burch family. She also dedicated the area around Mr. Majestic where the youth climbed to volunteer Tom Reed who has helped make trails all over the camp. Tom Reed is a former All Peoples Board member. We wish Sloan and Joseph the best in their new endeavors.

All Peoples – Meet Our Team – Susana Nieva

Let’s get to know Susana Nieva, All Peoples Community Center’s College Advisor:

Favorite Food: Tacos

Favorite Color: Purple

Favorite Animal: Dogs

 

 

Favorite Quote: “Whoever corrects the wicked incurs abuse. Do not rebuke mockers or they will hate you; rebuke the wise, and they will love you. Instruct the wise and they will be still wiser; teach the righteous, and they will increase their learning.”

How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: I would describe All Peoples Community Center as the cornerstone of the South LA Community where the Community is welcome to come to make a positive difference in their lives, their families, and others. Our members are encouraged by staff to innovate themselves by starting a new career, going back to school, and contribute in the work force by ensuring employment along with many other resources.

 

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part of my job is when I get to talk to families about opportunities for their children. They show appreciation knowing that they are not alone and that their children’s future is in their hands. I also enjoy listening to high school student’s talk about their plans in regards to their education. I humbly look up to them because most of them are first generation college applicants, and on top of that, our students come from economically deprived homes. Thus, it is a huge commitment to continue their education. They are doing it!

My best All Peoples story: My best All Peoples story is from a few months after joining All Peoples’ College Corner department. A college student came in distressed in regards to financial aid previous year disbursement. The student had an outstanding balance, therefore, was not allowed to add classes. He had done what he could in terms of financial aid tasks, but the college financial aid office was not helping him solve the issue; they were telling him that in order to add classes he had to pay out of pocket. I accompanied the student to the financial aid office, and spoke to the financial aid representative. The financial aid representative instantly uplifted the fees therefore, immediately allowing the student to add classes. The best part of this story was that the student was able to continue with his educational journey, moving one-step further to getting his degree.

 

Hobbies: I like to watch YouTube videos. I also enjoy looking at nature and writing.

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: I love to write in my journal about lessons I’ve learned throughout my day and life with the purpose that I will never forget, and that I will practice them.

 

 

Me in 3 Words: Ambitious, Passionate, and Kind

We’re so happy that Susana is part of our All Peoples Family!
